The Twins Celebrate

Today, June 9, 2021 marks the 11th Birthday for “The Twins”… Big Red & Mackenzie.

The early days Big Red w’ red ribbon

The story began here, Sunday Night, Dog Night. I had been blogging only a few months at that time. We were there just a few hours after they were born,

Big Red has always been a bit hyper and more than a bit needy.  We always talked about what he might be like when he grew up and calmed down a bit.  Well, today he is a 75 lb, 11-year old puppy.

Never far away from a tennis ball, he is always up for a game of catch.

Always a tennis ball nearby

They both love the water, but are afraid of gunfire, so they probably would never be good duck dogs.

The amount of time they have been apart in 11 years can be measured in hours.

Big Red is graying out much faster than his sister. . .  surprisingly so. Maybe it is because he is so hyper.

It will interesting when the first one dies.  The other will be lost. But then again, maybe not,
